I’m Daria Jones, an artists. Singer, songwriter, actress and model. I’ve recently added entrepreneur to my title. I’m a Jersey City native and lover of people and life. I’ve had the opportunity to travel the world and do great things with my gift of song and looking back I’m truly humbled. I’ve worked with some really great talents and I’m currently working on my EP to release early spring. FINALLY! I’ve always had a passion and have been fascinated with handmade jewelry, skin care products, clothing or anything DIY. Lol I love making people smile and seeing people happy.
My business started from my passion of being a DIY’er and a conversation with my friend. I initially began making Whipped Body Butters for myself, family and friends. One day I happened to look at him and said your beard needs something. I began whipping up a formula I thought would be good to help keep it moisturized and shared it with a few more bearded friends. They loved it! And Voila here we are. It became a no brainer. I said to myself “Start your business, you’ve been talking too long about multiple streams of income. Utilize your skills and gifts”. Now here I am making beard balms and whipped body butters for men. Men love to keep nice and groomed. And I like seeing them happy as well as their aigni others, they love how their mans beards feel!
I‘m Single! (Pouting) lol
The balance for me is still tricky at times between music, family and keeping up with orders and making product. I have to learn time management all over again. Starting this business added to the schedule. It’s been a blessing but sometimes I’m frustrated.
My biggest challenge was to move out of my own way and to understand things don’t happen overnight! It takes time to build a business. I’m still learning and growing as I work on it. Another challenge for me was to balance my finances. I didn’t plan to start this business. I’ve had thoughts about it in the past but in this case I took a leap of faith to just do it. So the money wasn’t really there for me to do it but I decided to make certain sacrifices for the well being of Gracefully Yours.
I say if this is something you’re really passionate about. Pray on it and ask God for guidance. He’ll definitely direct the path and he’ll send the resources. There’s a market for literally everything we can think of. Study your market and move forward! Trust and believe in yourself and your business. Pray over your business.
Be sure to be on the look out for new music from Daria Jones by the end of February as well as new products from Gracefully Yours.
